Dear J.K. Rowling and Suzanne Collins,
Thank you. Thank you so, so much for being better than other authors, and making your female characters just as strong as the boys.
Sincerely, Harry Potter and Hunger Games fan forever.
Yes, I respect my elders but it annoys me when they don't respect us.
Sincerely, frustrated young adult.
I think a man wearing a helmet protecting his country should be paid more than a man wearing a helmet protecting a football.
Sincerely, one's more important than the other.
We will always be the ones to stand between you and death and scream "Not Today", regardless of whether you thank us or not.
Sincerely, Doctors everywhere.
Please don't treat me like I'm naïve just because I'm younger than you. My intellect, my ideas, and my life experience have significance. If you listen to me instead of dismissing me, you might realize that I have real things to say.
Sincerely, a high school student sick of being trivialized.
No, I don't have a crush on her. She was nervous and shaking and looked like she need a confidence boost, so I told her she is smart because she is and she needed to hear it.
Sincerely, I was being a nice guy. You should try it sometime.
Please stop calling one another sluts and whores. It just makes guys think it's okay to call you sluts and whores.
Sincerely, Miss Norberry
Dear guys my age,
Please stop asking me to send you a nude photo of myself. It's my body. Some girls want their husband to be the first one to see the goods...
Sincerely, a 22 year old woman who is respectful of her body and is waiting til marriage.
Please put books back where they belong. If you don't know where it goes, ask a librarian or leave it out. BUT DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE RANDOMLY STICK IT ON SOME RANDOM SHELF! Because then nobody can find it, ever. Going through the whole library for one misfiled book — a'int nobody got time fur dat!
Dear men and women in the army, navy, military, coast guard, and Air Force, ,
God bless you. And, thank you so much
Sincerely, American that is grateful everyday for you
Dear female store patrons,
Please know that we do, in fact, know that girls have periods. Buying your tampons from us is not awkward for us, so it shouldn't be for you.
Sincerely, male store clerks everywhere
If you believe that women should care for the household and children while men are working hard, it's okay, because everybody can have their own beliefs. But do me a favor and stop telling me I'll grow up to be a failure in life when I openly tell you I do not intend to have children or get married. And I'd also be pleased if you stopped threatening me with detention if I speak up during your rants, because again, everybody can have their own beliefs, and yours aren't mine.
Sincerely, a believer in equal rights
Dear friends teasing me for 'not having a boyfriend',
You DO realize that we are in grade SIX, right?!
Sincerely, I'm too young for this, and so are you!
Dear Guy trying to date my daughter,
I don't hate you because of your tatoos (I have my own) Its not because you were a high school drop out (I was to) and its not because your parents abuse drugs (I did at one point too)
Sincerely, its because you put her down all the time and act like a little prick, she deserves better than that
